When I purchased this product I was looking for an entry level midi controller with more than just a keyboard.

I had so much fun making electronic music with this keyboard that now I'm teaching myself ukulele.

After 15 years using a Roland U-20 as a midi controller I began to wonder if upgrading would ever be needed. I figured all I needed was something that could trigger midi notes, and my old keyboard did that just fine. Then one day recently I saw a live band using a little 25 note controller to trigger Combinator patches out of Reason, connected only by a USB cable. The little dials on the keyboard were being used musically to change various parameters of the sound. It then occurred to me that maybe I should take a hard look at what has happened in the last 15 years with Midi controllers.

Escaping from my local retailer with M-Audio Oxygen 8 v2 in hand, I rushed home to see if these bells and whistles really mattered. Skipping the dated CD-ROM that came in the package, I downloaded the current M-Audio drivers using the World Wide Web. Driver installation was painless, and then I connected the hardware. After windows carefully chewed on three different hardware wizards it was all done. Not bad, although I have some sympathy for anyone who is not familiar with the Windows "Found New Hardware" wizard. Fortunately the documentation describes the procedure in detail. The creative session that unfolded over the next few hours is what prompted me to write this review. Long ago it was very difficult to pass "special" information over Midi. Users were forced to map out keyboards, sift through menus, and spend hours on configuration. Those days are over! With this current technology, mapping a function to a dial or button is a simple matter. Software like Cubase and Reason just ask for you to touch the dial you want to use. After you give the dial a little twist the software detects it and maps it to the function of your choice. I could not be more pleased with how well this works.

Works great with Reason 3.5 on Intel Mac. One key shows signs of problems...make sure you get one with even keys. Mine may be a fluke, but I saw similar reviews with this problem elsewhere. Otherwise, a great deal.

I'm a digital music noob and have been putting together a modest setup on my Dell laptop running Windows Vista. I'll tell ya it hasn't been easy. Drivers that don't work, programs that won't register and are incompatible with each other, sound cards that are also inadequate, audio interfaces that have bad drivers and won't work with anything else, oh my, it's been some hard lessons learned and there are lots of regrets along the way. But my one component that has been hassle free and has worked to my expectations right out of the box is my M-Audio keyboard.

Besides being easy to set up and use, I've been impressed with the quality. It really is a heavy-duty instrument. The whole thing just as a very sturdy, substantial feel to it. The key-action is decent. It does register how hard you press the keys pretty well. The one thing I don't like is that I have a fairly "light touch" and it fails to register some of my keystrokes. It really wants you to pound the keyboard apparently. I've gotten used to it, and it's fine for putting together little tunes at home, but it's no piano replacement, that's for sure.

I can recommend this controller for those that need a small keyboard due to space restraints. It's limited by it's two octave range, but for most horn or string parts it's more than adequate. I needed a keyobard with a modwheel to help enter parts into Sonar with the Garritan Personal Orchestra plugin, and so far this keyboard is perfect.

Another bonus: incredibly easy to setup. Put the CD in the drive, load the drivers, plug it into a USB port, fire up your software. It worked perfectly the first time.

This two-octave midi controller is perfect for small spaces or travel. It fits neatly in your lap, so you don't need extra desk or table space.

It's great for jotting down ideas in a digital audio workstation -- like having a musical sketch pad. And it's full-featured enough to really fill those ideas out if you like. It even has an input for a sustain pedal, if you like using one.

I had no trouble getting it up and running. I did run the included driver disk before plugging it in (I'm running Windows XP). After the drivers were installed and the controller connected, my DAW software recognized it immediately and I was off and running.

If you connect it via USB, everything you need is in the box. If you plan to connect it with a midi cable, you'll need both the midi cable and a 12 volt DC power supply, neither of which is included. It doesn't have a battery compartment. It only runs on external power, whether from the USB connection or a power supply.

I really like that it doesn't take up much room. When I'm not using it I can stand it on end out of the way, or just tuck it on a shelf.

As other reviewers have mentioned, it does have a nice heft and it feels sturdy. The action of the keys is adequate -- I don't expect the feel of a concert grand piano at this price -- but it's more than good enough.

This is a really good choice if you're looking for a compact midi controller at a very good price.
